Before Turner Before Monr Before Mansfield - Jean Harlow was the original "Blonde Bombshell," with luminous skin swathed in white satin gowns, kewpie doll red lips, and that trendsetting platinum blonde hair. This golden girl tantalized movieg rs early on in her career with revealing costumes and sensational movie lines such as, "Would you be shocked if I changed into something more comfortable?" in her breakout film, "Hell's Angels" (1930). But unlike other Hollywood sirens, Harlow displayed real comedic chops, most notably in the films "Dinner at Eight" (1933), "Libeled Lady" (1936) and those she made with Clark Gable, such as "Red Dust" (1932) and "China Seas" (1935). Throughout her decade-long acting career, Harlow made 36 movies, received countless accolades, including landing the cover of <i>LIFE</i> magazine - a first for any movie actress - and was one of the most widely loved stars in town; certainly on her home lot of MGM. To her family and colleagues, the endearing actress was simply known as "the Baby" - a sweet, unassuming woman who was nothing like the vamp she played onscreen. Despite her mysterious death at age 26 of what was essentially kidney failure, Harlow would not be forgotten, with the American Film Institute voting her No. 22 on their esteemed list of the "50 Greatest Stars of the Cinema" some 60 years after her tragic death.
